We have noticed a much stronger demand for cufflinks over the last few years. The shirts with fold-over double cuffs are very much in fashion and can be beautifully accessorised with a nice pair of cufflinks. Cufflinks, in the past were the preserve of an older, may I say “Posher” stratum of society. Nowadays the wearing of cufflinks has become much more widespread and democratic.


The best and most beautiful versions are made from gold and often include sparkling real diamonds – the cost of such finery doesn’t suit everybody’s budget and Sterling Silver versions are commonly available. We carry a beautiful set of Silver Claddagh Cufflinks made by Reids of Ireland, Fado Jewelry supply us with some beautiful pieces.


The advent of more “Novelty” pieces has brought a new dimension to the cufflink market – the pieces are easily affordable and sets can be bought for just one occasion.

We recently had an order for Tractor Themed Cufflinks – the groom is a farmer and wanted himself and his Groomsmen to wear Tractors on their sleeves. Thankfully, the Bride agreed.


In our Galway Store we carry a full range – these include Swarovski Crystal, Irish Flags, Galway Crest Cufflinks, Claddagh, Celtic Knots and even some very fetching sheep. I have to say that the Bride gave the Groom a very stern look when he picked up the Sheep Cufflinks!


Tie Tacks and Tie Bars have also made a fashion comeback – Tie Tacks or Tie Pins usually have a spike that goes through the tie and connect with a chain that can go into a button hole. The Tie Bar or Tie Slide just slides across the tie and keeps both ends together.

I love seeing the classic accessories making a comeback – check out the Mens Jewellery on our website.


Keep it Classy!
